Notes:

Bert: This is the plain bearing Micron 2.5 - as David said, one hell of an engine! The same engine was also made with a BB shaft. Clanford says these came out in 1975, but his dates are often not correct.

 

 

 

 

 

 

David Owen is also an avid fan of this engine. From his collection, we see here two examples. The one with the red anodized head is the plain bearing "Sport" version. The other, a ball bearing team race variant. David says it "feels like an Ollie" -- high praise indeed!
